Put marshmallows under all four corners of a computer keyboard.
Take the batteries out of the tv remote.
Go to the pet section of the grocery store and get a few mice. Place the mice in the refrigerator, in an ice cube tray, in the bath tub, under the bed cover..lol!
The best one I’ve heard yet was done by George Clooney. He sneaked into his friend’s trailer and fastidiously dipped his cat’s litter box every day for a week.
Once the friend had his cat at the vet, being run through a battery of tests, and on laxatives; he let the friend (and the cat) off the hook.
A couple of years ago, I set autocorrect in Word to replace a coworkers name with “Matt The Dork Brown.
Took him several months and god knows how many sent docs to figure it out. :-)
It wasn’t April Fools Day, but I once set a coworker’s screen saver to the blue screen of death and a 10 second countdown to complete system failure, including a warning that all data stored on the computer would be lost. She fell for it completely. You should have heard the shrieking when it activated. Very gratifying.
My daughter wants to take some apple juice in with her during a drug test..pour it in the urine sample cup while in the stall..then in front of the nurse, look at it and say..”oh, to full”..then drink some of it.
Well to us down here that was yesterday - but it’s like 4am 2April here. I didn’t believe anything I read then and I’m not going to believe stuff in the US or wherever until it’s past. I got fooled too many times. LOL’s
All daddy has to do is slide the glasses off the table as is onto a tray. Take them over to the sink and slide them off.
Which reminds me, I'm out of Dunkin's
A heavy piece of paper will do it. Such as construction paper.
I hope they have their running shoes on.
Why not just freeze the water in the glasses and let it thaw upside down?
Along those lines I like to take a screen shot of someone’s screen. Then, set the screen shot as the back ground issue and make sure to hide the windows bar to autohide. First, they think it’s the mouse battery, then, the keyboard, then panic when they restart the computer and the same thing is going on.
Swapping left and right mouse buttons are pretty fun as is reversing the direction of travel.
Autocorrect pranks are always fun.
Tape auto fresheners under desks.
Spring loaded package peanut traps in file cabinets. This one takes some extra hardware and planning.
ALWAYS lock your computer when you work with nerds.
Back in the early 90’s I worked at a tech startup. You didn’t dare miss work or else there was no telling what your computer was going to do when you turned it on, and what sort of booby traps would be awaiting you in your cubicle.
Those were fun days. I missed work one time and upon my return I found that someone had installed Windows 95 on my computer. The horror!
The BSOD screen saver is always good.
We’ve actually done the caramel onion thing.
My best wasn’t April fools but when some friends were on vacation, we built a wall across their hallway. Studs, drywall, mud, paint. The works.
